    EPA Attempts Appeal of Clean Power Plan and Penobscot Nation’s First Ambassador on Indigenous Peoples Day

    Key Discussion Points:
    a) This week, Trump’s EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, announced his intention to repeal an Obama climate action, called the Clean Power Plan, whose goal is to significantly cut back on climate change pollutants in the power industry, most notably carbon dioxide.

    David Doniger, Director of the Climate and Clean Air Program, Natural Resources Defense Council
    Maulian Dana, Penobscot Nation Ambassador

    This program was produced in partnership with the Sunlight Media Collective.
